PS Vita’s BigFest is also coming to PS4 and PS3

Build the biggest, baddest music festival out there

We recently brought you news of our festival management and music discovery game BigFest – where players build their own mega festivals by discovering and promoting real-world, unsigned bands. Well… we are very excited to announce that the game will also be coming to both PS4 and PS3 as a free to play title.

For PS4, we are taking the PS Vita version and giving it the full next-gen makeover – full 1080p resolution, running at 60fps. The game will support Cross-Save, so you will be able to play your game out and about on your PS Vita, then come home and carry on exactly where you left off at home on your PS4 or PS3.

The game itself will have hours of fun gameplay that will satisfy all your music discovery and festival gaming needs. We want players to build the biggest, baddest music festivals they can possibly imagine, whilst discovering and promoting real musicians. Discovering top talent and selecting the best headliners are just a couple of the important responsibilities players will manage to get the all-important festival ‘vibe’ up!!

We are currently finalising the best way to allow players to get their music into the game, so keep your ears open for an announcement about this very soon.

Are you bloody serious? I thought this was going to be a Vita exclusive only! The PSVITA is already suffering with the lack of first party games. But they had at least exclusive indie games. But not anymore, Sony decided to port this over to other systems too.

Good job Sony, way to go to kill your platform.

Ow well… yet again my comment went to moderation…

Nazar_Ops I think they want to prepere us before GC 2014. I’b betting Gravity Rush will be PS 4 exclusive or PS4/Vita

Devil’s advocate here, but I don’t see the problem, the game is still on PSVita, right?

I don’t get it. It seems like people are happy when less people get to enjoy a game. Some people just want games to be exclusive just for the sake of the game being “EXCLUSIVEé

If it would depend on me, I think the best thing from a consumer standpoint would be if all games were multiplatform, instead of the constant “EXCLUSIVES EXCLUSIVES, EXCLUSIVE CONTENT” and having to buy different platforms.

I have no interest in this game, but ultimately more people get to enjoy a game, right?

Anyway, I hope Gravity Rush 2 will be on PSVita and PS4 so it will get the exposure it deserves and it won’t take anything out of my enjoyment for when I’ll play it on PSVita. Not getting a PS4 any time soon.

@Cyrske
And how would you sell console without exclusives?

You know why 3DS is slaughtering Vita? Because it has exclusives…

I mean like, what’s the point in getting a Vita now when the games eventually come to PS4 and PS3? This wont help the sales at all. People are just going to buy a home console instead.

2.1

Even if both have EXACTLY the same games, there is still a huge difference: The Vita is a portable console. So, you can play your games everywhere, and whenever you want.

And it runs full console games. How cool is that? Who cares about console exclusive? The more platforms, the better!

I use my Vita to play Rogue Legacy while travelling on public transport to and from work. Then I get home and play it on a PS4 using the same save data. Started doing the same with Fez this week.

Exactly chrisboers.

It boggles my mind how people can be mad at something that now more people will be able to enjoy, while they will still be able to enjoy it themselves on PSVita, if that is their platform of preference.

The PS4/PS3 are not alternatives to PSVita because it is of course it doesn’t have the versatility, portability and pick-up and play format of the PSVita.

promising, exciting vita exclusive and its gone! I’m really excited for this game but i was a lot more excited when it was a vita exclusive.

Good job… now I’ve lost all my interest for this game. Congrats!

For everyone criticising this no longer being a Vita exclusive; I am actually more excited about BigFest as they have put the work in bringing this game to all three current PlayStation platforms and implementing the cross-save feature shows how confident they are in this being an excellent experience for gamers, while I also feel as though it is driving the convenience of the cross-save functionality, so everyone calm down and relax, please! It looks to me like it is a fun game that will provide a unique experience and will still be coming to Vita natively; I could only understand the criticism if it was cancelled for the Vita, which it obviously has not.

Sony doesn’t seem to understand the concept of handheld gaming. We don’t want ports or games that already exist on other platforms. If you want to push sales of your device, you need to have some kind of exclusive content. No one is going to buy a Vita for remote play. Sony is assuming everyone has a PS4 because it’s so “great”.

6.1

Yes.We have to say #notoremoteplay I don’t understand it,I know ps4 needs games but bring a Vita’s exclusive to ps4 is insane. At least is a free to play but I don’t like this kind of unpolite things with psvita users.

@Nazar_Ops
Stop it Nazar, it is meaningless they won’t even listen. To them we are only -haters- and not valuable customers.

There is some nice word describing what Sony did with this game… it is word derived from the name of the oldest job in the world… Sony just didn’t care if it will be honorable or not… they just want to grab easy money. So yeah… that word fits perfectly.

6.3

Don’t use the ‘we’ word unless you’re absolutely sure you’re talking for everyone, which you aren’t…

Poor Vita. I don’t understand how you could go from fully supporting your successful PSP system, to completely embarrassing and almost destroying, the Vita.

The Vita NEEDS – 100% – exclusive games that stay exclusive. Remote play and poor ports, and releasing the same game for both PS4 and Ps3 – is just ridiculous.

8

Would you people please stop vita-whining in every post. You bought a overpriced mobilephone without a phone just because it was Sony – deal with it. Besides Sony has a history of NOT supporting their hardware unless it’s a success from the go. Remember Xperia Play, Move, 3D etc.? You should have seen this coming like the rest of the world.

8.1

When Vita launched its price was actually very fair compared to its components. A similar smartphone would’ve cost a lot more. Really, it’s PS4 owners that are buying overpriced PCs “because it was Sony”.

As for Xperia Play, that’s not from Sony Computer Entertainment. There’s a difference between the branches in the company, and that wasn’t a product of the video game division. It was from Sony Ericsson. Move and 3D are peripheral experiences. Sony may think Vita owners are okay with the platform being re-positioned as an accessory, but no one bought a Vita for that purpose. It was intended and sold to people as its own independent platform. But this should warn anyone foolish about buying a Project Morpheus, though. If Sony won’t even support a $200+ device they promised to nor would they support inexpensive peripherals, why in the world would they support VR?

8.2

Agreed!

Vita is a smartphone without the ability to make calls and the bonus of having physical buttons. It’s sad, but I tend to agree more and more with that comparison. I own a Vita and I love it, but the Android game scene is getting better and better, even Ridge Racer for Android has better graphics than the equivalent game for Vita (I’ve played both). Soon enough handheld game consoles will become pointless. But I digress…
Then the PS4, as it is, is an expensive machine to play “pixel art” games. NES? Master System? No, the really cool 8-bit games are on PS4, Sony’s best next-old-gen games machine!
I honestly don’t understand what Sony is doing anymore.

It will be a matter of time before we see Freedom Wars flock over to PS4.

9.1

That’s kinda too far fetched, but it can happen.

9.2

you need to take a chill pill

10

Whenever I put records on people tend to leave. I’m not sure I’ll do too well at this game.

Looks like a Facebook game

I’m calling it: Metrico will come to PS4 and PS3 in a few months.

Would be great, because I’m loving the game so far. More people should discover the game on PS3 on PS4 so it would be great. ^.^

But the game uses the touchscreen, gryoscope and rear-touchpad so I doubt it would work, well they would have to remap a lot of the controls at least.

I kind of agree with the points that Vita needs exclusives, but hell i am looking forward to this game and am glad i will be able to show it to people on my TV, yes i will play it 99% on the vita but like the option to play it on my ps4/ps3 and hey heres hoping for seperate trophy lists. This game is great and from a developers point of view the more people playing (as free to play) the more money they make and the more they will support the vita (and ps3/4) so works out for the vita. Look i have a 2 hour commute each day 1 year ago was struggling for games and having to watch tv etc towards the end of the month, now i am struggling to complete games and have a huge backlog, THANK YOU SHAHID. Also this game certainly looks like it rocks!

Thanks for bringing it to PS3 and PS4, there was no need to keep it Vita exclusive
part of the ecosystem’s charm is to be able to jump between these platforms at will and according to our needs

15

“ECOSYSTEM????” haha! I see that Sony words are working in people.There was a need to keep games exclusive for the Vita,that’s what people are asking for.
It’s amazing,today I have learned that ps3 and ps4 users don’t mind a thing psvita.And they want all for them,it doesn’t mind if it’s a vita exclusive.

15.1

Yes, that’s what it’s called. It’s the Playstation “family”.

15.2

@Porcupeth00
Sure than how about making PS3 version of every PS4 game… I mean it is -family- after all. Or even better let’s make PS2 versions of every game there is. I mean PS2 sold like 160kk copies… PS3 only 83kk. PS4 8kk

I mean.. it is -family- after all, so let’s make every game available to every other console.

15.3

PS3 can’t handle PS4 games
PS4 can handle PS3 and Vita games
If a game is built for the Vita then it can run on the others. Not so the other way around. It’s that simple.

Just a side note:

You won’t get any reply here, so if you want to ask something visit US blog. There is Mr. Nick Accordino. He is DA BOSS, he is the most cool employee in entire SCEA he usualy reply to everyone he can. But be aware that if you will insult Mr. Nick in any way I will rip your hands off :D (that’s how much I love that guy :P)

Seems strange as I don’t have a vita unfortunately but now I can buy this game that looks great, what’s confusing is that people would complain that it shouldn’t be allowed to be ported, you have a game company that has made a game for the vita and has had success with it that it can also come over to the larger mainstream market that is the home consoles where they will be able to hopefully get a bigger market share and make more profit that will go back into a new game/sequel that will prob b released onto all devices, what’s wrong with this, you say u want it as an exclusive but it comes down to the people who make these games and that’s what keeps them in a job, as an owner of a vita/ps3 or 4 u should support ur console otherwise let it go

I have absolutely no problem with this game coming to PS3 and PS4. If people who don’t have a vita want to enjoy this game then they should.

Let Sony make all future games cross platform, that way the vita would finally be getting a nice flow of games. I don’t care if a game could be a system seller, and I don’t care if everyone buys a vita or not. I just want games for my vita, and games being cross platform could give me just that.

Non-exclusivity works both ways. I find it weird that everyone gets worked up when a vita exclusive comes to ps3 an ps4, but when a new ps3 or ps4 game is being anounced we’re all begging for that game to come to vita too.

“If people who don’t have a vita want to enjoy this game then they should…”

…buy a Vita. That’s what they should do. Then we wouldn’t have problems like a lack of content on the platform. The PS nation is massive letdown – 80 million PS3’s sold worldwide and only a few million Vitas. Where are all those so-called PS fans and why haven’t they bought Vita?

18.2

@madmanwithabox12
That’s a best comment in the entire thread.

If only they could understand it.

18.3

And who told you they didn’t buy a vita? Maybe they just want to play on both a home console and the Vita?

God that’s a lot of whining. You people are giving Vita owners a bad name. The game is still coming to Vita but now you have the option of playing on your console too. That’s more options for you and non Vita owners get a look in as well. At the end of the day it’s a free game and they need as many people playing it as possible.

Another advantage to this being on PS4 for me personally is that despite owning a vita I will get the chance to play it. Because for some reason Sony won’t release the essential 64gb card in Europe (even getting a 32gb takes a lot of hunting) I have to delete games I haven’t finished on vita before I can download new ones and I probably wouldn’t have done that for Big Fest. Now I can play on my PS4 and if it hooks me I’ll make space on the vita and use cross save so I can play in bed, on the bus or wherever.

I ordered my 64Gb card for about £60 from Japan. Expensive but well worth it!
